For centuries and for different circumstances and factors, our societies have been corroded by a terrible scourge: corruption. This evil is embedded in all levels and spaces where human values are deteriorated or do not exist, conditioning our growth in every way. There is an antidote for this type of pollution of the spirit that can be enormously effective if it is applied and cultivated since childhood. We refer to ETHICS.
That is why the objective of this competition is to add particular and group efforts, private or state, to achieve and/or enhance individual and collective development, with integrity and freedom. CARTA DE TINTA, the INTERNATIONAL IDEA INSTITUTE, and the ALIANZA FRANCESA AREQUIPA on their 70th anniversary, invite you to participate in this event with the warm welcome of all the people of Arequipa and all Peruvians.
